As a subsidiary of STEAG we have decades of experience in district heating supply. Alone or in joint ventures with local authorities and public utilities, we directly and reliably supply district heating to end users. Our generating plants for the most part are cogeneration plants: they produce power and district heating simultaneously – that is especially efficient and conserves resources. The hot water produced during this process is transported to our customers through a system of pipes.
Not only conventional sources of energy are used for generation, but also, inter alia, the waste heat from industrial enterprises and, to a growing extent, renewable sources of energy like geothermal energy and biomass. In this way we help to increase the proportion of renewables in the German energy mix.
